drunktuesdays: ([COMM] i will NEVER DIE)
Boy do I feel like I have so much to tell you about but I always forget everything as soon as I open Livejournal.

First things first, let me tell you a storyabout nailpolish )

Anywho, it is YULETIDE REVEALS which I was ESPECIALLY anxious for this year, because I wrote something that I feel simultaneously proud of and crazy nervous.

My recipient was [livejournal.com profile] ishie who I love and knew from her 30 Rock stories. We matched on Downton Abbey, which I was excited to try to write, and THEN I read her request and her first prompt was for Mary/Carlisle and I was like WHAT? Who would even SHIP THAT, he's clearly a gigantic feelings challenged asshole!!

But then I couldn't stop THINKING about it, and as I was talking it out with [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek I actually totally talked myself into it. What really got me going was Ishie specifically asking for "wounding each other and reluctant affection and bitterness and grudging admiration" and I was like, yes, I love ALL of that stuff as well, and really, Mary is sort of a gigantic feelings challenged asshole herself.

Once I started going, I didn't stop and I wrote 6K in basically a week. It's the longest thing I've ever written, and I think it's the best thing I've ever written as well. I knew it wasn't going to be as popular as Mary/Matthew stories are, but I was HUMONGOUS caught up on whether Ishie would like it, and she did! So it was a success for me!

So anyways, if you wanted to read it, it's called Take Care!

Then I watched the Christmas special and cut for spoilers )

My Yuletide gift was a Community story from Eli called Mercurial Adventures in Chemistry and it is GEN about my favorite group of dummies on television. Wicked pleased!

And now I am going to sit quietly and recover from the straight up punishment I delivered to my liver, and wash the lipstick stains off my rack. Happy New Year, guys!
drunktuesdays: ([GEN] ~*~*VONNIE*~*~)

Thank you so much for writing for me. I love stories, and as I say every year, writing for me is like taking a communications 101 class at a no grades college. I am easier than your mom.

I like MANY THINGS, but in particular, I like people being nice to each other. I like fond mocking, capers, dudes holding babies (their own or other peoples), people rising to challenges, figuring out their sexuality, high school, fairy tales, dumb jokes, arranged marriages, soulbonds, harlequins, slash, het, gen, etc and so on to infinity.

I dislike FEW THINGS, but they are main character death, trauma that doesn't get resolved, angst for the sake of angsting, UNRELENTING GRIMNESS, vampires, werewolves, magical genderswap (this does NOT include always-a-girl aus) abuse, h/c that has more hurt than comfort.


An Abundance of Katherines: I am prepared for the eventuality that I will be the only one to offer/request this book but in case you are interested, I have uploaded a mobi copy right here. I loved this book, and Colin and Hassan's roadtrip and their bickering and bantering. I still don't understand how that book didn't ended with the two of them deciding they were made for each other, but I would also appreciate any gen adventures with the two of them traveling around. I liked Lindsay and her attitude on life so please, no Lindsay bashing. As I said in my actual request, in order to write Colin, there is a bit of John Cusak hating of ex-girlfriends, but I would appreciate no gratuitous woman bashing.

HIP HOP RPF: Nobody wants Drake and Nicki Minaj to get married like I do. Drake himself comes close, but I want them to be married everywhere. I love them so much, and I would appreciate any stories about their relationship and Drake's inept way of wooing her. Nicki can turn him down forever if you want, but the fond affection of their friendship is my favorite, and I will cry rainbows if you wrote me a story about them

COMMUNITY: Yo, I totally had to include this to ensure I got matched. It doesn't mean I don't love this dumb show like my own child because I DO. I have written for it before, mostly Troy/Abed, but I'd read anything you wrote. Gen capers where the group commits to a terrible decision? In for it. Three characters trapped in a room and forced to have hilarious interactions? Do me on it. Two characters hooking up in silly and/or sexy ways? I'll slice it open and huddle inside it. I don't care anything about Jeff/Britta or Jeff/Annie but I do care about Annie and Britta in any other combination including Annie/Britta, and boy do I want Dean/Jeff songfic to Waking Up In Vegas.


drunktuesdays: ([DiVaS] i think i was eve)
I have an unfortunate habit of adjusting to small negative changes in my life, out of pure laziness, and then not noticing when those changes become larger and larger until all of a sudden I OPEN MY EYES and my life is INTOLERABLE.

Such as when my right mouse button stopped working TWO YEARS AGO and I learned all the windows shortcuts to avoid right clicking.

And then the battery would only really last an hour, then 45 minutes, then a half hour, and then I had to keep it plugged in all the time.

Then a screw came loose in the side of the screen and never went back in right, so the thing made noise when I closed it, and then more noise, and then it really just stopped closing all together. Then the thing the screw used to belong to BROKE.

Cut to [livejournal.com profile] kalpurna and [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek laughing hysterically when I carted out my laptop which the back cover dangles, the lcd is propped on one side by blank cd case, and which I had to run to plug in before I had wasted the 3 minutes of battery I was allotted.

...Uh, I bought myself a new laptop, guys. I think it was justified.


I wrote Automated Daydreaming [Troy/Abed] for [livejournal.com profile] gigantic, which, let me tell you friends, I was terrified of THAT assignment, because Ceej is the only person other than Hannah, Giddy, and I who I consider a Ph.D of Pete Wentz, and therefore worthy of much admiration and a good yuletide story.

So then I wrote that. I wish I had it in me to write longer stories, but I'm pretty happy with the way that came out. Yay dumb sitcom fics!!!!

I also wrote you are the song which is a VERY short FNL Tami/Coach treat fic for someone who prompted about their first thanksgiving. For writing it at work, and then making [livejournal.com profile] misspamela beta it immediately, I am happy with it.

But the fic that person got as their actual story is SO GOOD that I can't even deal. bright and clear is probably my favorite take on Eric and Tami's relationship. ♥

I also really liked the Modern Family fics this year. Particularly the ones about Alex coming out. OBVIOUSLY I loved Marks's (who mocked me for kudo-ing it without recognizing her) tapdancing in a minefield makes me want like FIFTEEN THOUSAND WORDS of Alex and Haley being mean/supportive of each other. UGH I LOVE SISTERS BC I DON'T HAVE ANY.

I also really liked dividing every question 'til the questions are complete despite the fact that it has SUPER WEIRD spacing issues that I just want to fix. It's pretty much everyone's reactions to Alex coming out, and I think my favorite is this.

When she tells grandpa (and she doesn’t want to, because this feels like a total over-share, but her uncles insisted she start now, or something), Claire has his elbow in a tight grip, and Mitch is muttering things like, “No jokes about k.d. lang. No asking if she’s going to cut off her hair. No-”

“Oh, geez,” her grandpa sighs, pulling her into a hug.

“I love you,” he says into her ear. “And if anyone tries to give you trouble, you just let me know.”

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide author,

First of all, YAY. I am so amped that we have been matched, because I always have great luck when it comes to exchanges. I am SO EXCITED, as Yuletide is my favorite time of year, although this is only my second year actually participating. Here is last year's letter, and it is still mostly relevant. I am still the yuletide equivalent of a communications class at a no-grades college. Easy peasy.

Basically, I like stories where people are nice to each other. I like stories where people are figuring out their sexuality, or who are oblivious to things that they should already know about themselves. I like when people rise up to challenges, and prove to be good people despite shitty events. I like babies, and high school, fairy tales, movie aus, humor, teasing, formed families, slash, het, femslash, gen, RAINDROPS ON ROSES AND WHISKERS ON KITTENS. The whole cheesy ABC Family channel original movie cliched deal where everyone is happy at the end.

My dislike list is easy too: genderswap, death, abuse, h/c that has way more hurt than comfort, sad endings.

I'm such a loser, and I can't even be embarrassed about it.

SPECIFICALLY: Hellcats, Community, Parenthood )

You guysssss! My yuletide gift is so cute!!

It's called A Very Greek Christmas and it is GREEK GEN. I am such a lamer because I LOVE GEN SO MUCH, but this is exactly the kind of gen I love the best where I am SLASHING THE CHARACTERS. LOL doing it so wrong. This is like the time Ash was writing me an Ashleigh/Rebecca story and I admitted I was slashing her Ashleigh&Casey.

Only better because it is all for me! Seriously guys, if you like Greek and ladies being great, you should probs read my fic.

Rebecca sauntered in further and peered at where the water was making crackling noises atop the back-left burner. "I saw you rereading that Betty Friedan book, yesterday. Don't lie."

Casey's mouth opened and closed a few times before she sneered and returned her attention to the list in front of her.


"I just didn't know you knew who Betty Friedan even was."

"I can read."

"Also news," Casey sing-songed back and grinned at Rebecca's glare.

Ashleigh returned just as the kettle started to squeal and Casey started explaining just what the Very Greek Christmas Exchange would entail. It turned out to be a pretty blatant harbinger of doom.


This is my first yuletide actually participating and I feel like it has been a large success! I wrote two stories (one to be revealed tomorrow I guess?), and I am pretty happy with their outcome!!! I see that everyone is playing a guessing game and I am SUPER CURIOUS to find out if my writing style is as distinctive as I think it is.

If you can guess my yuletide story and/or my treat, I will write you at least drabble! Comments are screened. :D :D :D :D

PS TO [livejournal.com profile] marksykins: THIS JUST DEFINITELY HIT MY GOOGLE ALERTS WITH THE HEADLINE "Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz: Dentist Duo" WHO WINS MORE THAN US?

drunktuesdays: ([HIMYM] hi-5)
Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide author,

What up! This is my first year doing yuletide, and I'm super excited. I've gotten excited about postings and reveals every year, but my involvement has been always limited to reading and enjoying everyone's suffering the last two weeks before the deadline!

But you should probably not suffer! If you are not already on my flist, then you should know that I am unspeakably easy when it comes to fic. There's not much that will keep me from enjoying a fic, especially since spending a year in bandom where my no list was "sad death". Note that happy death is totally fine.

In general, here are somethings that make me cross the line from enjoying to adoring: really dumb jokes, inept dudes holding babies (self-birthed or otherwise), fond mocking of main characters, parodies, fairytale aus, devirginizing, arranged marriages, obliviousness, sex against walls, girls being great, aliens made us do it, dreams, pretty much any premise that you go "no one is going to roll with this". I promise you, I will.

My dislike list is ridiculously short: Angst that doesn't get resolved. Vampire!fic. Magical genderswap (although I'm totally fine with always-a-girl). Character bashing that is serious, not hilarious. PRETTY MUCH THAT IS IT. I am not a real big BDSM girl, but I think that ties into not being a really big pwp girl? But I seriously am typing this and thinking of two stories that are exceptions to that statement. All of this is optional, seriously. I can't imagine disliking whatever you put out, unless everyone dies at the end. Then you will pay.
